Never Meant To Be

The day I met you,
For the very first time,

Watching you,
From the distance,
You stood by yourself,

Fiddling with your hands,
With a 20 dollar bill,
Not even a pound,
To be found in your wallet,
I came for your rescue,
Paid your cab’s fare,
And there you were,
Red like a tomato,
Embarrassed and flushed,
But we laughed it off,
That black dressing shirt you wore,
And the faded denim jeans,

I still remember how nervous we were,
When our eyes first met,
When our worlds finally collided,
We headed down the road,
For our first meal together,
Nandos wasn’t your cup of tea,
That butterfly chicken you made fun of,
The way you looked at me,
That spark in your eyes,
The warmth in your smile,
I melted in the glimpse of your splendor,
Your annoyingly cute OCD,
Your exhilarating throaty laughs,
The best of all,
Your amusing company,
For that one night,
I had it all,
But none to keep,
A long journey,
A 12 hour flight,
You came all the way,
Across the ocean,
Just to see me,
To be with me,
To feel me,
To have me by your side,
A day later,
For the very first time,
By the fast food stall,

You wrapped me,
In your arms,
Concealed me,
In your embrace,
You held me tight,
I held you close,
Never knowing,
One day,
You will have to go.

Writing is my passion and that is what I do here on this blog. I write about everything, whether it be Nature, Love, Hate, Relationships, Humans, Personal Life (where I discuss lessons learnt through real-life experiences), Food, Philosophy (sometimes) and much more. I write in any form whether it be Prose or Poetry. I am in search of ‘Myself’, hence there is not much I can tell you about me. Perhaps, I have a very brilliant idea. Why don’t you come along with me on my journey? I will always care to share and you can also enjoy the ride. For now, this is it. I am ‘ME’ – a wanderer in search of a fulfilling life. Until next time, Love Living Life! I express my sincere gratitude to all my Readers! -Naima

    This hurts more than it should *sigh* lovely words as always though 🙂

    • Thank you Barrira for your comments always ❤ I heart your work (like absolutely) so I wouldn't think my words are even close to how you put your feelings on the paper (well blog lol)

      Thank you for always reading.

      Hugs,

        That’s very generous of you Naima ❤ I love reading your words just as much if not more 🙂 and ohh the words that go on the paper, I carry them in my bag, something about writing on the go xD

      • Writing on go is one of the coolest thing I know, don’t get a lot of time to do that now but when I was younger back in high school, I loved to do that.

        Oh yes it is, especially when the environment around is uncomfortable. Words help make sense…
